Gotham City Surfing

Last year the Parks Department declared this stretch of Rockaway Beach, Queens, to be NYC's official surfing-only beach. Previous to 2005, surfing was a ticketable offense. According to the city's site, you should carry your surfboard onto the A train, then ride it to the 90th Street stop in Rockaway. The surfing beach is between 87th and 91st Street. I've never seen a surfboard on the subway, has anybody else? I saw about 100 surfers last Sunday, maybe if you enlarge the top photo you can see them bobbing out there.
